KTN BioFabrication Webinar: 3D printing – What is it and what can it do for you?, 19th November 2020

Date and Time: Thursday 19 November October 2020, 10:00am – 12:00pm BST

This webinar hosted by the Knowledge Transfer Network (KTN) in collaboration with NBIC core partner, the University of Nottingham, aims to bring together industrial stakeholders from the materials, pharma and industrial biotechnology sectors, in order to identify opportunities and needs derived from Additive BioFabrication.

Additive BioFabrication produces complex structures from biological materials such as cells and biomaterials; this emerging technology has the potential to support a design-led manufacturing approach for the production of in vitro models used for drug discovery and development, cell based clinical therapies and biotechnology applications.

The University of Nottingham is active in this research area, with state-of-the-art facilities and 3D printing equipment, including mammalian and prokaryotic cell culture and 3D imaging, enabling BioFabrication at nano, micro and macro scales. Outputs from the research allows collaborators and stakeholders to replicate and build bio-inspired 3D structures that can be used to direct cell phenotype and behaviour.

During this webinar you will get an overview about Nottingham’s BioFabrication Centre and learn about various case studies. There will also be break out rooms to discuss the barriers to adoption of additive biofabrication technologies within industry.
